DETAILED DECRIPTION

On the west side of the Nam Lang River, there lies a nearly undiscovered way of life waiting to be explored. Enjoy this unique opportunity, and insight into old world culture on this six-day Ziya Dum Trekking itinerary. Travel by car and foot in Yangon, Putao, Upper Shanguang, Wason Dum, Ziya Dum, Hkalan Dum and Kyauk Sein Taung. Learn about an exotic culture as you chat with tribe members in each of these small ancient villages. Tread where few travelers have gone as you stay in local houses and spend a day discovering how they truly live. 

DAY-TO-DAY

DAY 1: Yangon - Putao - Upper Shanguang

Retire for the night at a local house.

DAY 2: Upper Shanguang - Kyauk Sein Taung - Wason Dum

Trek to the peaceful Wason Dum Village through the Kyauk Sein Taung Pass - charmingly named “Jade Mountain” in the local language for its natural composition. Keep your eyes peeled to spot stunning wild orchid and hornbill. The countryside is buzzing with wild birds and rare butterflies. Arrive in Wason Dum and spend the night at a local house.

DAY 3: Wason Dum - Ziya Dum

Trek through the small village of Awa Dum and visit with the local Lisu tribe as you make your way to Ziya Dum. Hike through the dense, lush jungle and cross a suspension bridge to reach Ziya Dum. Spend the night at a local house in the village.

DAY 5: Wason Dum - Kyauk Sein Taung - Upper Shanguang

Spend the day trekking between the villages on your way back to the Upper Shanguang. Take the scenic route along the Kyauk Sein Taung pass and pause to smell the beautiful wildflowers spotting the hills. Spend the night at a local house in Upper Shanguang.

DAY 6: Upper Shanguang - Putao - Yangon
